Political Circus: Keeping it classy...

(CNN)— Take the free-for-all nature of social media, add the oft-mean spirited commentary that punctuates political circles and you have a recipe for petty online smackdowns.

Political circus: I'm in whatever party Biden's in

Washington (CNN) - If you watch Vice President Joe Biden, you get the impression that every day is a BFD — the D stands for "day."

And no day is bigger than the State of the Union address - which is kind of like a bizarro world high school reunion where the popular kids are the party in power and members of the minority party often look as if they’re ready to dump a bucket of pig’s blood on the prom king-president.

Obama, Romney fight for middle class voters

WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Barack Obama, fresh from his renewed pitch to cut taxes for the middle class, takes his message to Iowa Tuesday - a trip shadowed by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as part of a GOP strategy of "bracketing" the president's public appearances in battleground states.

Obama won Iowa by 10 points in the 2008 election.
